Business & Industry Partner Opportunities

Career Advisory Council

This council, which meets quarterly, consists of representatives from local businesses and educational institutions who help guide CTAE toward its mission of providing cutting-edge innovation in teaching and learning through a technology-enriched academic environment.


Beyond: Career & Tech Expo

A signature Career Advisory Council event for our business community to network with our students and faculty. This is a great opportunity for all stakeholders to come together to share career/college information. It’s your turn to showcase the “WOW” within your organization. 


Curriculum Support

Business partners are welcome to work with our classroom instructors and students to provide academic support. Our goal is to develop “real world” experiences that will demonstrate the relevance of our curriculum.Our partners share industry knowledge to provide information on career awareness and opportunities in the workplace.


Guest Speakers

Speakers are invited to share industry knowledge and expertise by providing information related to their respective fields. Would you be willing to act as a resource for our teachers and students?


Mentoring Program

Mentors meet one-on-one with students during the school year and act as supportive listeners, role models and personal coaches. They provide guidance, career exploration, academic assistance and advice on personal development.



Local businesses are asked to sponsor student-oriented activities by providing in-kind donations or financial support. Sponsorships are always welcome to support our academic clubs in competitive events at regional, state and national levels, which provide invaluable experience for students to compete, collaborate, network, and travel.


Job Shadowing & Internships

Students participate with local businesses in job shadowing experiences during their junior year and paid internships in their senior year. Consider hosting a job shadowing experience and offer a paid internship position to a student.


Field Trips

As students research careers, field trips make the classroom experience come alive. Our field trips offer students the opportunity to network and explore various workplace environments and expectations. Additional field trip hosts are always needed.

Business-Sponsored Workshops

Workshops allow industry and education to work collaboratively toward common goals by providing an opportunity to share corporate philosophy and corporate culture. Workshops provide technical training for students and staff. One of our premiere workshops is the annual "Educators in the Workplace", held each summer.
